Here’s the Deal

April 30, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

A Texas State Trooper is in big trouble for posing with Snoop Dogg at South by Southwest.  He will get a reprimand and Lord only knows what else because Snoop Dogg has drug convictions.



And here’s our Governor posing with this nice Christian fella.




Now that is white privilege.

Thanks to Brian C for the heads up.

    Abbott should be busted.

  2. Sooooo which one was slumming?

  3. Abbott is making Texas even scummier than Perry did….

  4. This deputy’s lawyer made a great point – they would not have cared if the person had been Willie Nelson.

    It’s not a weed versus pedophile thing. It’s a white versus black thing.

  5. There was a time when I enjoyed the Amboy Dukes, one of the bands Nugent played in. That was a long damned time ago. Perhaps, if it is true that he has never used drugs, he should have. He probably wouldn’t be such a ΔΐͽΙ{ now. [Hope that was undecipherable to Mama.]

  6. Karen in NM says:

    And here I thought the justice system the deputy and his bosses are sworn to uphold says that those who are convicted and pay their debt to society are free to live among us like ordinary citizens. Now, I’m not a fan of Mr. Dogg’s music, but he is quite the well turned out gentleman in the photo. Sort of like the kind of performer who would be invited to the White House and the Kennedy Center.

  7. UmptyDump says:

    It’s a shame that the DPS career of Officer Spears is probably over, given the hostile institutionalism that will endure no matter how his lawsuit ends up. And it is not likely to end up well for him unless grounds can be found to have his complaint heard in the federal justice system, because he will find no justice at the hands of the state. Keep this man in your thoughts.

  8. Old Fart says:

    If the ONLY thing this officer did wrong was have his picture taken with a controversial musician, and the Governor shows that a draft dodging, racist pedophile is OK…

    What possible reason do this officer’s superiors have for damaging his career? Is it just because the officer is in uniform, or on duty?

    I mean, does Mr. Dogg have some kind of privilege negation field or something? If it had been Rob Lowe, or Willie Nelson would the same thing have happened?

  9. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Snoop Dogg had one of the best backbeats in early rap music. Used to rattle my crib to his music.

    But who is the old guy sitting on Abbott’s lap?

  10. maryelle says:

    Even more telling than your Governor cozying up to Nugent is the assault rifle, prominently displayed on the counter behind them. Just when you need an accident to happen… nuttin’!

  11. I look at my state of IN and think, well, so far, we’re not quite as bad as TX. But that’s a pretty low bar.

  12. e platypus onion says:

    Ain’t A-Butt a bit old for the child molestor?

  13. MN had Pointergate, when the mayor of Minneapolis had the temerity to be in a photo at a community gathering with an ex-con. It looked like they were having fun and they were pointing at each other.

    Now the initial problem is that Mayor Betsy Hodges is married to a black man and her children are — dark.

    The story cooked up by a local racist tv reporter was that they were “flashing gang signs!” The racist president of the union ate it up. It made nationwide news and bucket loads of social media ridicule from around the country for the reporter and union pres. They were finally shamed enough to drop it, though neither one ever publicly apologized.

    Is it possible to shame Abbott enough to shut him up?

  14. 2 sick sobs!

  15. maggie says:

    Nugent is looking more than his age lately. Is this a sign? As for Abbott, first of all you have to have a brain and a heart to gin up a feeling of shame. Sociopaths have trouble with that shame thing, too.

  16. Marge Wood says:

    You know, you can like someone without having to be all cozy with them and let them influence you unduly. Or can you?

    DPS General Order #10: “To conduct myself, on and off duty, in a manner that merits the voluntary praise of those with whom I come in contact, so that my actions reflect well upon myself, the department, and the State of Texas.”

    I think this is probably the cause of the reprimand for this trooper. While most of us would not see a problem getting a picture taken with a rock/rap star, the fact that he’s a known felon has apparently gotten someone in this man’s chain of command upset.

    The fact that Trooper Spears was working security “while off duty” is not the point. The point is he was wearing his DPS uniform (allowed in off-duty security jobs) when the picture was taken. If he’d been in civilian clothes, it probably would not have been an issue, though still not recommended.

    All DPS employees, commissioned or not, are expected to live up to these standards. “Conduct unbecoming” can be a termination offense. The uniformed commissioned officers have a much higher visibility. Because of this, they are held to a higher standard by the public and the department.
